Fifteen years before Dick Anderson opened Cypress Printing in 1970, he worked as a plant superintendent for a group of newspapers in the Hawthorne South Bay area of California. He is shown making up a newspaper page to get ready to be printed (circa 1950).
Dick passed away suddenly at his home in Cypress in November of 2012. He is survived by his wife Teddy (61 years of marriage), three children (all living in Cypress), thirteen grandchildren, and twenty eight great grandchildren. He was Mr. Fix-it that alway put family first. He is greatly missed.
After working along side his father a number of years after returning from the Army, in 1980, Rick decided to take the initiaive to start Cypress Silkscreen. At the time printing caps and t-shirts was a new process so most of his early success came from trial and error.
Now, over thirty years later, he both owns and oversees Cypress Printing & Silkscreen. Rick and his wife, Mary have four children and ten grandchildren. Rick enjoys shooting hoops, playing tennis, waterskiing, and very rarely will miss a Laker game. There's nothing he enjoys more then spending time with his grandkids.
